Elfin, Mel, Ed.
This career planning guide to graduate school education in the United States ranks graduate study programs and offers prospective students guidance. In articles about schools, students, life on campus, fields of study, and job prospects the guide tries to present a comprehensive view of what the best graduate schools today offer their students. The first several pieces in this issue provide some pragmatic advice on student life, how to cope with computerized entrance exams, and paying for college. The remaining sections are loosely organized by field of study: graduate business and law schools; education and the teaching professions; medical schools, osteopathic and veterinary medicine, other health fields, and social work; engineering; and the arts. Articles cover job prospects , students' school experiences, and the ranking of specific schools and programs. The "Careers at a Glance" section provides a concise guide to what kinds of applicants graduate schools seek, tips on admissions and test requirements, and job and salary outlooks. Also included is an eight-page self-evaluation survey. The Directory section is a state-by-state listing of 800 graduate programs. (CH)
